Movie Info

Ka Lok Cheung (Man Yee Lo), a disenchanted social worker, takes on the case of a mentally disabled woman, Ming-Ming (Lily Chung), whose father has been killed in a car accident. She finds Ming-Ming at a home for the mentally ill, run by the kindly Chan (Ben Ng). Cheung spends time with Ming-Ming, draws her out of her shell, and teaches her to dance. Meanwhile, the neighborhood is being terrorized by a murderous, slobbering rapist. The locals blame the group home for all the mayhem, until the patients team up to stop a drunken pervert from molesting a schoolgirl. The neighbors are won over, but the real menace is still at loose. Ming-Ming soon learns the horrible truth. Chan, haunted by a childhood trauma, flies into a psychopathic rage whenever he sees a woman wearing red. He brutally rapes Ming-Ming, but decides not to murder her. Ming-Ming is extremely distraught and confused, and makes a poor witness against Chan when the case comes to trial. When Chan is freed, Cheung decides to get revenge. Red to Kill was directed by Billy Tang. ~ Josh Ralske, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Red to Kill

All Critics (1)

For all its flirtation with the boundaries of bad taste, never once does Red to Kill come close to treating the mentally handicapped as worthy of ridicule.
